Ionic Spark is a great and balanced item on its own merits; however, the item is suboptimal in virtually every build path because its stats are better itemized from other sources. Ionic Spark would need to be reworked into a much larger item in order to be optimal in any build.

I personally like the item, but it doesn't currently fit.

Most on-hit items have always been weaker than an AD build. They're very slowly starting to find their place as the individual damage item in a bruiser or tank build though, and that's totally cool.

Sadly, Ionic Spark is insufficient as a farming item, as most champs will get just as much utility out of either more AD, or a Sunfire.

It's unfortunate, I'd love to see Ionic Spark be decent, but it would have to be buffed quite a bit.

Cool item that works on certain characters. Riot is making a mistake removing it.

You know, tiamats would probably be better for your purposes, except for the fact that it has no defensive stats.

I'm going to post this on this thread too, but I believe Riot should have a poll to find out if the community wants to keep (and possibly buff) Ionic Spark or not. I personally like the item myself.

I use Ionic Spark with AS Lulu. I love the visual. I don't even care it if does anything more that what it does now.Why remove a thing just for the sake of removing it? It people want to use then let us or buff it. But I agree don't remove it.

They are reworking the Tiamat to be that niche passive wave clearing item.

The ionic spark was really just not a very good item.

It was easy to abuse at low ELO but not used at all at high elo except on a few already problematic champions (looking at you Shen).
